  1. What does the gradient of a distance-time graph represent?
    Speed
  2. What is the speed of the object shown in the first section of this distance-time graph?
    • 5 m/s
    • (It travels 10 meters in 2 seconds)
  3. What is the difference between speed and velocity?
    • Speed just has a size
    • Velocity has a size and a direction (a vector)
  4. What does acceleration mean?
    How quickly the velocity of an object changes
  5. What does the gradient of a velocity-time graph represent?
    • acceleration
  6. How can you calculate distance travelled from a velocity-time graph?
    • Calculate the area under the graph
